What you´ll need (0:06-0:23):
a plastic bowl
First, section out the hair (0:26).
Mix bleach and developer. It should make an icing-like consistency (0:33).
Split the bottom section of hair in half (0:53).
Apply bleach mixture to bottom 3" of hair (1:01).
Feather your application toward the top (1:07).
Make sure you cover completely (1:13).
Move to the next section of hair. Split and repeat (1:37).
Heat ends with blow dryer (1:56).
Then check first section of hair you bleached. Brush through for total saturation if necessary (2:05).
Compare against the last section of hair you bleached (2:22).
When you see that hair is ready (2:40), remove foils over sink and rinse endy with water (2:43).
Squeeze hair color into plastic cup (2:55).
Apply color generously (3:00).
Remember that it´s ok to get some color on unbleached hair. It won´t be super visible unless you have light blonde hair (3:12).
Wrap in plastic bag (3:26).
Apply heat if your color instructions advise you to (3:32).
The longer the stain can sit in your hair the better it will hold (3:36).
Let it cool for 5 minutes (3:43).
Remove excess color with paper towl. If you want brighter color, apply more! (3:50)
Rinse ends with conditioner only (3:54).
